Mission Health has announced a pioneering management agreement with Mountain Area Health Education Center (MAHEC). Under that agreement, MAHEC will lead all Mission Medical Associates (MMA) primary care practices.

“MAHEC is nationally known for their quality in educating primary care providers, and they are experts in leading physician practices,” said Jill Hoggard-Green, PhD, RN, Chief Operating Officer of Mission Health and President, Mission Hospital and Mission Medical Associates. “Mission sought out MAHEC to provide management services because of their expertise and leadership. Given that we also share a common vision that is patient-centered, evidencebased and safety net oriented, we wanted to leverage their expertise as a perfect complement to our MMA physicians to further develop and enhance the exceptional care our patients receive.”

Effective Feb. 1, Angel Medical Center is joining the other Mission Health System home health and hospice agencies to form a more integrated, efficient program to meet patient and caregiver needs.

Clinical and administrative personnel will remain the same and will operate in the community under the name Angel Home Care and Hospice. As a partner with CarePartners, Angel will be better able to manage important medical information, enhance home health and hospice care, and share experiences and expertise between the home care providers.

“The Medicare funding formulas have changed again, allowing us to offer the program,” Fischer said. “Since we’ve not offered the program since 2001, there is a real need for Certified Occupational Therapy Assistants in Western North Carolina. This program complements our already strong health science program offerings and allows us to further create a collaborative model within our division that we believe can be a model for other schools.”
